About the Charity

Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities creates unique educational experiences and enrichment opportunities for under served children.

We seek a reality where children have the resources necessary to realize their potential.

School Kids Diversity To ensure that truly no child is left behind, equitable access to resources is the first step. Using proceeds from high-impact events featuring first-class entertainment, Pat and Emmitt Smith Charities (PESC) creates experiences and distributes grants to high-quality non-profits providing historically underserved children with arts, education, health and wellness programming. In addition to financial support, PESC endeavors to help its grantees run more efficiently by connecting them with complementary community based organizations and the corporate community.
